September 2016 Bike Of The Month entry thread!

Please post your bikes here to be entered in this month's Bike of the Month contest!

To enter your Vulcan, all you need to do is tell us a little about it, and post some photo(s). And don't forget the story behind the bike because that can often turn the trick!

The winner for each round will be chosen by our members' votes! A new voting thread will be created near the end of the month.

Year:
Model:
Eng size:
Pipes:
Seat:
Wheels:
Accessories:
And the story:

As long as you haven't won in the past year you can enter again.

Please post your entries in the active month's thread. That thread will be closed at the end of the month. We'll start a poll with that month's entries and the winner will be named and have their bike featured on the home page.

You must have accumulated 15 posts in order to enter a bike, or to discuss the bikes, or to vote. You will be able to view the bikes, but not discuss them, vote on them, or enter your own until you have accumulated 15 posts. This is the same number of posts that has been required in the past to vote for BOTM.

Please note; You may be disqualified if you 'rally votes' from other members. This can include sending private messages asking for votes, posting new threads asking for forum members to vote for you, etc.

Please be respectful when discussing other members bikes. You may also be disqualified for unsportsman-like comments about other bikes, which can include insults, demeaning comments, or demanding in open forums or PM's that others not vote for them or that they be disqualified. If you have a legitimate concern that someone is not competing fairly and should not be considered for voting, PM a moderator.

Year: 2015
Model: Vulcan S
Eng Size: 649cc
Pipes: OEM
Seat: OEM
Wheels: OEM
Accessories: Krator Throttle Boss, Grifter Lockable Storage Box, Wolo Loud One Horn, Floureon Universal Motorcycle Phone Mount Holder USB Charger, National Cycle Street Shield EX windshield, and Viking Odin large saddle bags.
The Story: This is the first motorcycle I have owned. I did plenty of research and chose it because it looked like a good starter bike that I would not quickly outgrow. I now use it as my daily commuter and have also equipped it to be a light bagger that I can take on short camping trips. I just got my endorsement five days ago and have since put over 150 miles on it. I absolutely love this bike and look forward to more adventures to come.

The lift is for detailing and maintenance. Too old to work on my hands and knees. Not a problem 30 years ago, but them days are gone..

These were supposed to be a new pickup before retirement. Two new Vulcans cost 1/2 as much as a new truck and have been twice as much fun so far. Just wait til I retire 2018

I guess you will have to wait to see Arnold.
